Seattle's Arena Plan - Seattle and Sacramento are both working towards building a new arena to court the same basketball team - the current Sacramento Kings. In Sacramento, there are a lot of hurdles and moving parts making it difficult for arena proponents to get a working plan in place, but is Seattle facing similar obstacles? We'll speak with Seattle sports reporter Art Thiel about the ongoing tug of war between the two cities vying for the Kings and what Seattle is doing to get an arena in place and counter Sacramento's home court advantage.
Health Benefits Design - Covered California, the state's Health Benefit Exchange set up in accordance with the national Affordable Care Act, has released its benefits plan. We'll discuss the standard benefit design including price, coverage, co-pays and qualifications with Executive Director Peter Lee.
